New Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon looks traumatised after participating in the annual Polar Plunge in Chicago.

Our images show him looking frozen as he came out of a freezing Lake Michigan.

Fallon's endeavour comes after he invited Chicago mayor Rahm Emanuel onto his show.

Emanuel said he would if Fallon participated in the Polar Plunge - a fundraising event for the city's Special Olympics.

Fallon agreed - and made good on his promise earlier today.

Wearing a suit, he took the plunge with a wetsuit clad Rahm.
